Intergenerational dialogue between chefs and Basque culture. This documentary investigates the links between the new basque cuisine revolution and key artists from Basque Country such as Oteiza or Chillida as well as musicians like Xabier Lete or Mikel Laboa”, all part of the cultural group Gaur (Eldiario).
CinemaAttic joins for the first time Slow Food Glasgow and Slow Food Youth Network for this fully immersive event that includes a vegetarian Basque dinner. It’s a cinematic and gastronomic experience which aims to underline the role of food as a creative process: it connects people and places with their stories
At the Basque Culinary Center (BCC), 5 young talented students of cutting-edge gastronomy from all over the world will go back to the past to create the menu Bihar dok 13. They will travel to 1966 to discover the decade that would change everything in Basque culture. With five special events, we will discover the movements Gaur, Ez dok amairu and the spiritual father of the BCC, the Basque Nouvelle Cuisine. The “Bihar dok amairu” menu prepared by young chefs (Chinese, Basque, Catalan, Mexican and Guatemalan chefs) will be served during a special meal and enjoyed by the most relevant personalities in Basque culture today, uniting new artists and musicians. The old generation will symbolically open the door to the new. A deep immersive journey with top chefs into some of Basque Country’s most prolific artists and creators in order to design the perfect Basque menu.
The Screening will be followed/preceded by a Special degustation menu by our amigos at Slow Food Scotland.
